WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Richard

I've been dancing tango for over 10 years and have never had as profound a learning experience as I've had for the past 2+ years that they are my teachers. Jaimes and Christa are "Master" dancers and teachers in the truest sense of the term. I gratefully continue to learn from them both and be inspired by them both.

The knowledge, enthusiasm, encouragement, and passion that 8th Style Tango embodies while teaching this most complex dance has made learning Tango the most fun and rewarding challenge I’ve undertaken in a long time. They are the best of the best, 10/10!
